1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    it's not even rational. I can't STAND this blog or its writer. I read it every day just to scowl.

    The dude that writes it is a PR flack, so it's understandable.

    I think the blog does a good job covering current trends. There is nothing wrong with that.

    I like his blog. Some times his fan-boyism for overpriced stuff kind of turns me off, but I find it interesting.

    I must say I like it. If anyone doesn't like it, the solution is simple - don't read it.

    Voila. I didn't even know the blog existed but am going to go and have a read just after I finish this post. Who knows, I might end up hooked. Or I might also hate it, and end up telling everyone about it too.

    I like it, though the old workwear and Americana isn't always my thing.

    I can't read the FNB forums as they require you to enter your serial number from the insane asylum. [​IMG]

    This is my favorite thing about people-hating something, complaining about it, complaining about hating it, and then continuing to do it.
